5:05 am
happened that night. we want to play a little snippet for folks who did not watch the interview where george says since that night, that rainy night in february, he feels like his life is in jeopardy. listen. >> do you feel your life is in jeopardy? >> yes, sir. >> by the black panther party? >> amongst others, yes, sir. >> you've had multiple death threats? >> yes, sir. >> look at what happened in this case because it became so public, spike lee is tweeting out what he thinks is your home address. the reverend al sharpton and nbc news tries to use this case to bring up the issue of racial profiling. what do you say to spike lee, who didn't know the facts of the case? what do you say to al sharpton and those who rushed to justice? what do you think their motives were? >> i can't guess what their motives are. i would just ask for an apology.
5:06 am
>> steve: do you think he's going to get an apology from those parties that sean mentioned? >> i doubt it. these smears and the rush to judgment, the reckless playing of the race card have been disproved, not just by george zimmerman's testimony here in this interview, but last week, of course, there was a report that the f.b.i. had interviewed dozens of people and concluded with rather solid evidence that there was no racism on george zimmerman's part when this very unfortunate and tragic incident occurred. i think it's also telling, of course, that the reaction to the interview, the reaction to merely having zimmerman tell his side of the story has been more race card playing and not less. i think it's unfortunate that these death threats and vet tree
5:07 am
ideal that the zimmerman family has been met with will not be retracted and there is not going to be an apology. i think that's a really damning indictment of a lot of the culture. >> peter: who is playing the race card and how in reaction to this interview that took place last night already? where are we seeing that? how are seeing that? >> well, you can check my twitter curation site, twitchy, where we monitored a lot of the immediate reaction after the interview. the attacks that sean hannity is receiving himself now and fox news for airing the interview, especially, i think, are shameful given that a lot of the main stream media had gotten so much of the story wrong in the first place. of course, in a lot of the rush to cover the story, many mistakes were made. but there were a loft mistakes that were not apologized for. i think that's what george
5:08 am
zimmerman is getting at in that interview. and the white washing, i think, of things like these black panther death threats. >> gretchen: okay. there is other big news happening as well, michelle. of course, with the whole economy and the presidential election coming up the first week in november and much has been made about the comments the president made last friday when he was visiting virginia and said the government played a big role in people's personal success and small business, et cetera. now there seems to be push back coming from surprising places, like what? >> yeah. like john lovit, for example. he's the snl, saturday night live alum who took to twitter yesterday and you can find this on our sites well,, posted a picture of barak obama and the caption read, the nobel peace prize. you didn't earn that. somebody else did that for you. and this is just part of a massive social media pushback. i think that obama certainly
5:09 am
touched a nerve and it's not just among us crazy conservatives and limited government types. there are a lot of independent, small business owners who i think felt very aggrieved and insulted by not just the specific words that obama used, but the larger ideological contempt and derision and ignorance that is shown by so many of these bureaucrats. >> gretchen: is it a turning point, in your mind, in the election cycle? >> i think it's the beginning of a turning point. i think that a lot of conservatives and republicans shouldn't make the mistake that merely pointing out that obama holds these views is somehow going to lock in the results of the election. i think that there are two main themes that need to be harmed away. it isn't merely his contempt for free enterprise and business people. it's the corruption that has marked the last four years and

the redistribution of individual entwhistle thes and business -- entrepreneurs and business owners' wealth to other businesses that are i don't knowies of this government -- cronies of this government that didn't properly earn their money, their profits and their success, or failure, as in the case of so many of these crony businesses as we've been talking about. >> steve: i saw on his web site, mitt romney now selling t-shirts referring back to the roanoke episode where the t-shirt says, i built my business, mr. president. check out her web sites,, where you can read all of her columns, and, a social media aggregator. thank you very much. have a great weekend. >> you bet. you, too. >> gretchen: coming up, dealing with a short sale or under water on your mortgage? real estate expert bob massi here to answer all of your questions. >> peter: then a shocking investigation. why potential terrorist can still get on planes in the united states 11 years after the

5:15 am
house is going to foreclosure in the next few weeks. why would the lenders not take an offer as opposed to foreclosure from betsy? what do you say? >> i'm using a nice word, they're idiots, that's why. the bottom line is honestly, you examine i as lawyers and litigators, i will tell you the last four years of my life, i have never dealt with people that have lost a sense that americans live in a home and all they want is a sense of understanding. i talked to a guy and here is what he said. he said when offers go in on short sales, so our viewers understand, that's when an offer is made for less than what's owed, they do an evaluation, peter, and they determine what is the best number. if they're not satisfied with the number on the short sale, they, the lender, would rather turn down the cash, foreclose on the property, and literally sell it for less. and it happens all over the
5:16 am
country in the markets that are affected. las vegas, florida, michigan, texas, california, arizona, it's crazy. but it happens and it's just the way these people deal with it and that's why i have the contempt that i have. >> peter: so it's stupid for them and it hurts people and hopefully they're watching you this morning 'cause they'll learn a lot. christopher from maryland writes in: my mother passed away. in the will she didn't leave the house to anyone. this happens more than we think. do we have rights to that house, even though she didn't leave it? >> certainly. assuming that they are the primary heirs, as you know, they need to go see the state attorney to look at this. by by chance is what's going to happen, is under the if you die without a will, you will be the heirs, you will be able to inherit. but it's most likely going to have to be probated because there wasn't a living trust nor was the asset handled. make sure if a will was done g
5:17 am
to the lawyer that prepared it, if they're still practicing, otherwise go to an estate lawyer and they'll handle it. you should be able to inherit that house. >> peter: final questions, less than a minute here, i have only one child and one asset. my house, which is under water, but i own it free and clear. do i need to set up a trust or will to leave to my child? what do you say, bob? >> not necessarily. the one thing i don't encourage to you do is never put your child's name on the house for purposes of making sure that upon your death, it goes to he or she. what you need to do is a lot of states have what's called a deed effective upon death. almost like a life insurance policy. you put the name of the person that you want it to go to on that deed that's not an ownership right, but upon the death of that person automatically goes. again, check with an estate lawyer. see if your state has that. they do make exceptions in this area. i'm sure there is a law that will make it easy and not have to go to the expense of a trust.
5:18 am
>> peter: bob massi, great advice. and i've got a question and i'm going to call with you it, if i could. if you have more questions for bob, e-mail him at friends at fox he's going to answer these questions. always great to see you. we'll see you next week. take a look at this shocking video. a man grabs a little girl right off the street in broad daylight. how her two-year-old brother actually saved her. then millions of americans are out of work sadly. so what is the president doing about it? well, he's not talking to his jobs council. florida senator marco rubio, who is dealing with record unemployment in the state of florida, he's here to react [ male announcer ] it's simple physics...

5:23 am
thank the government for their success. >> so how are the swing states hit hard by the recession taking that news? florida senator marco rubio joins us. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: okay. so a couple of days ago, the president talking about business people who have been successful and he said you didn't build that. everywhere i have gone over the last four or five days, people have said, can you believe he said that? and i've got friends who voted for president obama and are independents and they said, what was he thinking? what's this going to do for florida? >> he was being honest about what he feels. and that's what we've been saying all along. he's not a believer in the american free intersurprise system. they'll never admit that because the american people support the american free enterprise. so they have to dress it up as something else. but the fundamental fact is that this president believes at his core and has always believed that the way the economy grows is when and he government have more power to take money and redistribute it into the economy. they've always believed that. you remember back in 2008 he
5:24 am
said that on the campaign trail and he's saying it again now. this is fundamentally what he believes and i think it's a reminder to voters in my state, but across the country what, a dramatic choice they have in november between two very different views of our future. one where the president and the government is in charge of our economy and the other where we, the people of the country, are in charge of the economy. >> gretchen: we got a glimpse of some of that feeling with the joe the plumber comment and spread the wealth before the 2008 election. obviously barak obama was still elected. maybe people will pay attention to this a little bit more because they've also been having the 3 1/2 years of the presidency and seeing other examples. maybe they'll also listen to jay carney, his spokesperson try to respond to the question about why has the jobs council not had a meeting since january 17? >> jobs council, obviously reported to haven't met formally or publicly for six months. why exactly is that?
5:25 am
>> the president solicits and receives input and advice from members of his jobs council and others about economic initiatives all the time. >> there is no reason they haven't met publicly? >> no, there is no specific reason except the president obviously has a lot on his plate. >> gretchen: how do you respond to that? >> first of all, this is typical. he did this with the debt and deficit. he appoints a group of people and when they come back with recommendations he doesn't like, he ignores them and campaigns against many of these things, like the so-called territorial tax system. these are people who held him, the way the economy grows is when people who have made money take that money and use it to start a new business or grow an existing business. but he doesn't want to hear that 'cause ideal lodgely that's not what he believes. so he ignores the recommendations and moves on. i think that's what we're seeing happening. >> gretchen: you would think with the jobs council, people who were appointed by the president, you even think their advice might be counter to what
5:26 am
he believes and that's why he hasn't had a meeting? >> oh, absolutely. we know that for a fact. if you look at some of the recommendations made and some of the public statements from some of those member, it's very clear that many of them clearly understand that the biggest impediments to growth in america today, nardoo all the uncertainty about our tax code, et cetera, is run away regulations, complicated tax code and we're making it harder and discouraging people from investing money in america's future. and i can tell you that the president doesn't want to hear that. i think that's why they ignore it and move on with their campaign speeches. >> steve: you heard jay carney. he's got a lot on his placement of course, that's fund-raiser, but i digress. let's talk about what your colleague from across the aisle, senator patty murray of washington, was talking about a couple of days ago. she made it very clear that the democrats are ready to let the bush era tax cuts expire all together. they're not fooling around this time. listen to the senator from the great state of washington. >> if we can't get a good deal, a balanced deal that calls on
5:27 am
the wealthy to pay their fair share, then i will absolutely continue this debate into 2013 rather than lock in a long-term deal this year to throw middle class families under the bus. >> steve: you know, a lot of people have heard we're coming to a fiscal cliff or tax armageddon or stuff like that. they don't realize that shortly after the election, there is a real judgment day coming for washington, d.c. >> there is a real judgment day coming for the american economy. i think what's going to happen is we're going to see a number of taxes increase dramatically and start to feel the effects already. business already planning for next year. you're going to start to see layoff, businesses not investing to grow their business. you're starting to see that. people are feeling the pain of this reality. look, that speech on earlier this week, number one, misstated the republicans' position on this issue. the second thing is ignores is a study that just came out yesterday that said very clearly
5:28 am
that if the democrats plan to raise taxes on america, go through, millions of small businesses are going to be in peril. 700,000 jobs could be lost, not to mention all the businesses that aren't going to start up and all the jobs that aren't going to be created. this is a very real problem that needs to be addressed. >> steve: it's interesting how you don't hear that story on any real outlets in the main stream media, do you? >> well, unfortunately i think some folks want to ignore that part of the argument. they keep talking about tax on the rich because it polls well and sounds like what the democrats want to push. but the reality is we know for a fact that it takes money out of the economy, puts it into the hands of government. this is money that now cannot be reinvested in starting new businesses or growing existing businesses and that's why that study came out this week saying 700,000 jobs will be lost if the democrats tax increase goes through. >> gretchen: senator, before we let you go, we have to go to your favorite topic, i know, don't say oh, my gosh action i can't believe you're going to ask that again. but the fox news poll, recent one, they asked people who would be the pick for romney's running
5:29 am
mate among republicans? condoleeza rice was first at 30%. and you, sir, were second at 19%. your response? >> well, i stopped talking about the whole process a few months ago. i know this for a fact, mitt romney will make a great choice and great selection. he's always made good decision. that's the number one qualification of a president birks the way. and he'll make a good decision on this issue as well. >> steve: marco rubio from capitol hill, thank you very much. have a great day. >> thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, last month 80,000 jobs were created. can we expect better news this morning? brand-new numbers released on the other side of this break. >> steve: record number of people in this country are on food stamps. so why is our government now working with the country of mexico to make that number even higher? >> gretchen: it's been eight years in the making. up next, an american hero nine gets his purple heart. you'll see it right here live on "fox & friends" i'm a marathon runner,

5:34 am
wasn't expected to go down. that was good news because the weeks prior to that it had been up. >> peter: this is 20,000 more than anticipated. >> steve: sure. i think that's when you look at the fox news poll results that came out yesterday, more people are becoming pessimistic about the future of the economy and where we're standing today than we were back in april. >> peter: not gotta. >> steve: not the direction we want to go. >> gretchen: let's kick off headlines. on an interview on sean hannity, george zimmerman apologizing over the shooting of trayvon martin. earlier i asked trayvon's parents if they could forgive him. >> because he extended to the apology to you and we got your comments, would you ever find it in your heart to forgive this man? >> our son just was murdered a couple months ago. so it's not something that i can really stomach right now. i mean, maybe in a few years. i don't know. but it's just reallycult right now to actually face and
5:35 am
sit in the same room as somebody that murdered my son. >> i think it's too much to ask of us to forgive the guy that don't even regret taking our son's life. >> gretchen: part 2 of the interview with george zimmerman airs tonight. >> peter: it's supposed to make sure flying is safe, but extremely troubles news from the government accountability office. the tsa letting 25 illegal immigrants attend a flight school in boston. >> steve: great. >> peter: some even got pilots licenses. even worse o'clock an illegal immigrant owned the school. republican congressman mike rogers shocked and outraged. >> iraq war veterans, all forced to undergo rigorous security checks before getting on an airplane. and at the same time, ten years after 9-11, there are foreign nationals in the united states
5:36 am
trained to fly just like mohammed atta and the other 9-11 hijackers did. and not all of them are getting a security background check. is that risk based security? i don't think so. >> peter: the gsa finding people on the in fly list were approved for pilot training. >> steve: remember mohammed atta? dust from the desert making its way all the way to florida. that's right. meteorologists say the dust particles will travel across the atlantic on trade winds and set up camp 5,000 feet or so above ground. it will paint the sky kind of a milky shade in florida. those with extreme sensitivity to air particles might want to limit their time outdoors. good advice. >> gretchen: shocking video of an attempted child abduction in philadelphia. come to your screen if you're not watching now because check out this guy right here who tries to snatch that ten-year-old girl. he puts his hand over her mouth right off the street. this is broad daylight. he then gropes her, but not

before falling down. police say it was her little two-year-old brother who you can see there, that other image, who screamed and quickly scared the guy away. he then fled in a white sedan. if you have any information about this case, please call your local authorities. >> peter: the united states shuttle program may be over, but the age of exploration is getting started. >> gretchen: nasa testing out its orion capsule in houma, arizona. casey stegall is there for us live. good morning. you got a close up look for us, huh? >> good morning to you. i don't know how much closer you can get than this. check this out. this is orion. in two years time, this thing is going to be launched into deep space. it's going to go 15 times farther than the international space station. this is obviously just the crew capsule. but take a look at what this thing will look like when it hitches a ride on a rocket to get there from kipuka inch really, florida.

these are nasa animations, when it goes up in 2014, it will be unmanned at first because they must test it. when it comes to reentering the earth's atmosphere. >> the shuttle came back in 17,500 miles an hour. >> here in arizona, they're going to be testing the capsules' parachute system. the devices will help bring orion safely back home once it gets past reentry. so they're dropping it out of a c-17 cargo jet at more than 20,000 feet over the arizona desert. this is the fifth of 18 parachute tests that will happen. eventually it will take man to places like mars and that is projected to happen in less than ten years. this is the next generation of nasa space exploration. obviously replacing the shuttle camera, getting nasa back to its
